Apologies for multiple postings. Please forward to interested parties. --------------------------------------------------------------- CALL FOR PAPERS 24th International Workshop on Description Logics (DL 2011) Barcelona, Spain, July 13th to July 16th, 2011 http://dl.kr.org/dl2011/ The DL workshop is the major annual event of the description logic research community. It is the forum at which those interested in description logics, both from academia and industry, meet to discuss ideas, share information and compare experiences. The workshop will be held at the Edifici Imagina (Avinguda Diagonal 177, Barcelona) from July 13th to July 16th, 2011. IMPORTANT DATES Paper submission deadline: May 1, 2011 Notification of acceptance: June 5, 2011 Camera ready papers due: June 19, 2011 Workshop: July 13-16, 2011 WORKSHOP SCOPE We invite contributions on all aspects of description logics,such as: * foundations of description logics, including expressive power, decidability and complexity of reasoning, novel inference problems, and reasoning techniques for solving these problems; * extensions of description logics, including, but not limited to, closed-world and nonmonotonic reasoning, defaults, epistemic reasoning, temporal and spatial reasoning, procedural knowledge, and query languages; * integration of description logics with other formalisms, such as object-oriented representation languages, database query languages, constraint-based programming, logic programming, and rule-based systems; * use of description logics in applications or areas such as ontology engineering, ontology languages, databases, semi-structured data, document management, natural language, learning, planning, semantic web, and grid computing; * building systems based on description logics, with special emphasis on optimization and implementation techniques; and * tools that exploit description logic reasoning, such as ontology editors, database schema design, query optimization, and data integration tools. SUBMISSION DETAILS We invite submissions of papers in Springer LNCS style, see http://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/Authors.html to arrive no later than May 1, 2011. The length of submissions is limited to 11 pages, including title and abstract (can be omitted if necessary), and list of references.
